I will 3D print this to see if it is better or worse than the production model of the V-3, which I think is fairly good.

Please keep in mind a service like Shapeways (or other) does not want to be put in the position of violating a patent (accepting money to print a patented design).
I don't know how you meant to get this printed (your business, of course) but figured it was worth mentioning given the context.

I planned to print it at my college's 3D printer, due to copyright.

Interesting. How much does it cost to get a v3 3D printed?

Is 3D printing expensive as a whole?

This depends on how much money you have/earn :wink: Basic price for ShapewaysWSF material is $1.40 per cm3, so the price depends on the size (volume) of the model.

As something to go off of, say a model you have printed before, how much would a 3x3 or 4x4 rake to print? I could give or take a few dollars from that number so I would know, as I would like to print a couple models myself.

I have been with this puzzle a lot, and it turns very well, but it locks up during corner cutting.
Backwards(reverse)cutting is about 1/3 of a piece. E-CUBE type 2 3x3x3 v2 is similar in design, but it cuts smoothly at +50and -25 degrees. Pictures of type 2 coming soon.
Type 2 is only similar in the flanges on the centerpieces, like the weilong.
